The more I look at that schedule the more I like it. No I'm not saying its easy, but it could be a lot worse including having to travel to the west coast & the PAC NW to play those NFC West games.
My big hope now is that we have more balance in terms of Home-and-away games. In other words we don't want to be on the road for a strech of a solid monthlike last year.
And I'm expecting 2 national games between MNF & SNF.

I for one, hope we do not get a Monday Night game. If we do, I'd have to take off on a Tuesday, which I hate to do. It would be soooooo much better, if we get a Thursday night game, or a Sunday night game, or even a Saturday game.

I was almost guaranteed that we'd have some inside information on the nfl schedule by now.

Sunday Night >> Monday Night.

More people can watch Sunday Night since it's on normal TV and not cable. I'm expected two, maybe three. One Sunday Night and Monday night at home, and a Monday game away (maybe).

Crap, I never realized that MNF wasn't on 'broadcast' television (I assume that some. Does that mean you can only get MNF if you are a satellite/cable package? All games over here (except MNF and the Superbowl) are on subscription only satellite packages, I just figured that all football other than the NFLN were free-to-watch.

It's not that. Last time, I think I got home after midnight, then had to get up and be at work, at 5:30am the next morning. I could probably do it again, but I really don't want to.


Oh yeah, I live in Port Arthur, pretty close to the Texas Louisiana Border.

All 12 playoff teams will get primetime slots. At least 2 each. And teams like the Steelers, Colts, and Giants will get the maximum.

Non-playoff teams like the Cowboys, Patriots, Bears, Packers, Redskins, and Jets will get primetime games. Probably multiple. The Cowboys and Pats will likely get the max.

Then, you arrive at the list of teams that could get one primetime game. The Raiders will get their one and only on opening week. The Broncos have always been a popular MNF team. They'll probably get one. Buffalo will get one because of the circus that is Terrell Owens.

Finally, there are the teams like the Bucs, Saints, Jags, and Texans who are borderline contenders that will likely have good weather late in the season. Some of these teams will get a MNF game. A SNF game? Fogetaboutit.

If the Texans host the Titans, Colts, or Pats in late November/early December, they will have a shot at a MNF game. I would say that one (and only one) MNF game on the schedule is a 50/50 proposition. At best.

If you include Thanksgiving, Thursday night football, Sunday and Monday night... it's not so bleak... all in all, there are slightly over 100 slots for primetime games. I think one is a foregone conclusion and 2 is rather likely. I just hope at least one of them are at home.

We know the Texans aren't playing on Thanksgiving. And if you want to include the NFL Network games as primetime, then yeah they could get two. If NFLN games are included, there are 84 slots.

But if we don't include the NFL Network games, there are 34 games on SNF and MNF (including the SNF Thursday opener). Last season, 15 teams appeared on SNF. 25 teams played on MNF in '08. If you look at the list I made above, the Texans would make the cut as one of those 25 teams. If fewer than 25 teams are selected, the Texans chances are reduced.
